Despite the two very successful, big budget Smurfs movies I still associate the little blue creatures more with the small Smurf figures that I used to get as a child and the hand-drawn animated TV show. I suppose that nostalgia is kind of hard to shake.
A new Smurfs special, Legend Of Smurfy Hollow, due for release soon will contain a mixture of CG animation and some of that more traditional hand-drawn animation. Brendon first wrote about this special early last month and today we got a promo for the special, which makes clear how the divide between the two animation styles will work.
The Legend of Smurfy Hollow is out on DVD in America on the 10th of September and in the UK on the 7th of October.
